The other side of the door


I walk down this hallway
It is a hallway that i have never walked before
There is a big blue door at the end
It's calling my name ever so sweetly
I must see what is on the other side

People tell me that i shouldn't go.
That some doors are better left closed
That only pain awaits me on the other side.
People say i am a fool for doing this
but i must see what it is on the other side

I am so close now
My hands are shaking with fear and excitement
I know that the odds are against me
They are basically like a zillion to one
Yet still i must see what is on the other side

I twist the knob and open the door
I take but one step in and...
I step into a blade aimed at my heart.
The blood pours from my heart.
Now i see what is on the other side

I look up form my mortal wound,
to find a girl holding the knife
She tells me how sorry she is with tears in her eyes
'its not our fault' i say I stepped into it.
This was the price i paid to see what was on the other side

I fall to the ground, but still looking into her eyes
Tears don't belong on someone so beautiful
Looks like this is the end of this me
I will return when my heart leads me somewhere else
and now i know what is on the other sid

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
